I hope you also discovered Peer Guardian aswell. Some musicians/labels are dicks and you could get introuble if caught, better to play it safe.

I'm contemplating just saying fuck it and only hearing 50 through streams and legitimate buying, because my friend introduced me to the shadowy underworld and honestly I don't think all the security to not get caught is worth it. I didn't realize it was such a big thing, I figured everyone was just openly downloading music. Apparently I need five proxy passwords and a fake ID to fucking do this.

Your bittorrent client (Azureus, BitComet, uTorrent, etc) should have built in protection features, but other than that the only thing you really should need is Peer Guardian ( http://phoenixlabs.org/pg2/ ) think of it like a condom for the internet, it's not going to protect you 100% of the time, but you're much safer with it than without and the chances of it failing you are very small.

If by chance you do get caught, they will send a letter to your ISP requesting you cease and desist (this happened to me before I got Peer Guardian from downloading House) or else they'll shut off your internet. But if you stay away from products put out by major corporations (like NBC Universal) and have PG on than you really don't have anything to worry about, especially sense most metal bands are pretty obscure and some would rather have you download their music for free, like it, and go see them live, as opposed to passing over them alltogether becuase you don't have the money for their CD. Just don't forget to turn PG off when you're done cause it might make some websites lag.

You would never get in trouble if you did it like I do.

www.blogsearch.google.com

"Genghis Tron- Board Up The House" Bam. Pretty much anything you could ever want is hosted on some site like Megaupload or Rapidshare somewhere on the web.

Oh yea, Rapidshare is amazing and you're not really at any risk. I think it's like $20 a month and you can find just about any kind of movie, game, music, w/e you want on there.

1. Opeth- Watershed (Damnation meets Ghost Reveries, simulataneously with more metal shredding a la Arch Enemy)
2. Genghis Tron- Board Up the House (Hm, hip-hop beats, grindcore spazzouts, and vocal-processed clean vocals, meets epic drone)
3. Protest the Hero- Fortress (Between the Buried and Me with more clean vocals)
4. Earth- The Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Skull (desert rock meets post-rock)
5. Flogging Molly- Float (a more straightforward rock Flogging Molly album)
6. Warrel Dane- Praises to the War Machine (a more power metally Nevermore with more focus on vocals)
7. Men As Trees- Weltschmerz (post-rock with hardcore yelling and awesome awesome samples and strings)
8. An Horse- Not Really Scared (Tegan and Sara meets Modest Mouse)
9. Judas Priest- Nostradamus (you've probably already heard it)
10. Fleet Foxes- Fleet Foxes (Sparrows Swarm and Sing with gospel influence)

An Horse, nice. They are a local band from here in Brisbane, Australia.


My favs so far this year

Opeth - Watershed
Judas Priest - Nostradamus (i love it!)
Testament - The Formation Of Damnation
Meshuggah - obZen
Soulfly - Conquer

It's quite a good little EP. It might be difficult to justify giving top ten props come January since it's only five songs, but they're gonna be great.

Also motivation for only hitting 50 rather than 100, this year is kinda sucky compared to the last couple.
